Sync-DfsReplicationGroup

Synchronizes replication between computers regardless of schedule.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Sync-DfsReplicationGroup [-GroupName] <String[]> [-SourceComputerName] <String> [-DestinationComputerName] <String> [-DurationInMinutes] <UInt32> [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Sync-DfsReplicationGroup cmdlet synchronizes replication between a source computer and a destination computer, even if replication is not scheduled by either a replication group or a connection.

This cmdlet ignores the schedule for the specified number of minutes. Use this cmdlet to alter the schedule temporarily to allow replication, because this cmdlet does not require Active Directory replication and LDAP polling.

Parameters

-DestinationComputerName<String>

Specifies the name of the receiving computer. A destination computer is also called an inbound or downstream computer. This computer overrides its schedule and replicates inbound.
